How much do you think he charges for signatures?
Normally 250 Euros. But if you bow before him and declare him the new Tennis king, he will give it to you for only 200 Euros. So practice your best bow

O.M.G.

My son just told me "I'm going to help you write your tennis article". I look up and there he is on tennis.com - he TYPED the URL in.

they are 2 things that puzzle me in tennis :
a) How come so many WTA players are overweight
b)How Roger's arm can be so skinny

I had no idea, that's a pretty stupid decision indeed. No wonder Novak can be pretty bad sometimes with people like that surrounding him

I think they learn the tone of voice, words and body language used when something is said about them. They are smart enough to make the connection. When we realized that, we talked about him as if we were discussing something else and managed to trick him and catch him before he could move a paw .

What a shame I don't know who's prettier! This match would have been an worthy rival to AO Final, beauty-wise!

Yah. Basically in 2006 I wrote a lot of reviews of Novak's matches for the website, they weren't very good, I wasn't really motivated much to make them actually decent writing, but they were posted on there and I was fine with it. In 2007 the webmaster decided to bring 2 other people on board to write as well, and that was fine with me, and we kind of rotated who would write. Finally it's the USO final and it is my duty to write the review, and I write the whole thing up during the match so that afterwards it was ready to go up within 15 minutes. He posts it up that night, but when I wake up in the morning it's not there anymore. He replaced it with a generic article he found on Yahoo or AP or something. I then looked back and he did that all the time. Replace original writing with articles stolen from AP or Yahoo. That makes no sense.

Blah so I hate them. Waste of my time Back in 2006 there was a chat room on Novak's site and he used to come in and we'd have chats in the chat room and I moderated those too. Those were the good old days.

Jess, the way you were treated sounds shitty

I did wonder if you were the "Jess" moderator there.

It's me

The starter of the Viktor Troicki thread If you saw that thread there it surely would have given it away since even the Serbs didn't care about him when I started it

Kuzzy sucks. Why does Roger enjoy watching her play again?

So you're a writer then? Do you write tennis articles for websites like Cheryl and a few others here do?

*edit*

HAHAHA I was just read Bodo's blog about the Serbs crashing out a few days earlier, here's what he thinks Novak was writing in his diary prior to the Anderson match:

Sunday: Won Pacific Life Open, had a great time at Lakers game; pretty tired, though. Mon: boring flight to Miami (gosh it's humid here); legs a little heavy; man, still can't believe I'm two for three in the last three Indian Well and Miami finals! Tues: Dragged myself through so-so practice, got some qualifier dude Anderson in first match. Wed. Miami starts today (already?), better focus. Thurs: Practiced OK. Better find out something about this Anderson. Fri: Waaahhhh!!!

Sorry if this was already posted, I just saw it now.

"What kind of shape am I in now? Well round is a shape." said Roddick with a laugh. "I had a very detailed retirement plan, and I feel like I've met every aspect of it: a lot of golf, a lot of carbs, a lot of fried food, and some booze, occasionally — I've been completely committed ... The results have shown."
